While on a 3 day photo tour with Back Country Journeys in Zion National Park in November of 2018, we hiked down to the Virgin River just north of The Watchman - the first major mountain entering Zion National Park from the entrance through Springdale, UT -
To photograph the result of the sun setting on The Watchman.
There was nowhere to get a good sunset shot that evening from where we were, so it was decided to shoot the mountain turning orangey red in the setting sun. It was so beautiful to watch this happen.
We set up our tripods and cameras right along the Virgin River and when the clouds turned this light red and the mountain lit up so well, I knew this would be special.
The yellow fall color on the trees adds to the image.
There is so much to see at Zion National Park and it's absolutely worth a visit - along with the other 5 + Million visitors annually. In the summer months it's tough to even get a parking spot.
But even in early November it was still crowded in certain locations. It's quite amazing, actually.
If you go to Zion, you HAVE to hike The Narrows - one of the most amazing things I've ever done - and try to hike up to Angel's Landing. The Angel's Landing hike is pretty tough if if you are not in decent shape and acclimated to the elevation of 4,500'. But it is SO worth doing.
